The LTTE, after being defeated militarily, is now attempting to use its ‘white collar’ activists to achieve its objectives, the Foreign Ministry quoted Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama as saying.
The Foreign Minister cautioned that countries such as Sri Lanka and the Maldives were vulnerable to such threats and that it would be in the interest of the two countries to share important information with each other and other member countries of the SAARC, the Foreign Ministry added.
According to the Foreign Ministry the views were expressed by Minister Bogollagama during a meeting with his Maldivian counterpart Dr. Ahmed Shaheed. The two Foreign Ministers also discussed issues pertaining to a MoU on Intelligence Cooperation existing between the two countries and the need for the Maldives to join the Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD).

Having 132 ministers in this puny island is the worst "white collar" crime. Forst clean up your house and the useless junkets before preaching to the SAARC or whatever.

It's a moral responsibility of Sri Lanka to protect and give support to the countries in South- Asia to eliminate terrorism.

Sri Lanka is now a "big fish" in this part of the ocean! All we need is good old Bogs to do a "charge of the light bfrigade".

First protect civilians, in this country, before going to advice others. Maldives is far more advanced, than Sri Lanka, in protecting its people.

Conspiracy theories seem to provide the best explanations for all our problems ...

Because of the 30 year 'curse' of terrorism, Sri Lanka has every right to warn other countries, which could fall into the same 'hell.' Fortunately, we had a leader who had the 'backbone' to fight terrorism.
Monday, 22 February 2010 07:51 PM
IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT SRI LANKA GUARDS IT'S COASTAL BELT, 24/7!

He and his cronies do not want other nations to interfere with Sri Lanka, but they would like to interfere with the Maldives. Let the Maldivian government govern the Maldives! They are a far better government than you lot in Sri Lanka.

Maldivian tourist sector feels threated after we gained peace. Lanka as a tourist destination is a better value proposition.Anton Balasingham got on a sea plane from Male due to LTTE links in Male.
